    @gubrutsky, you can submit more than one but I suggest that artist focus on the details of a great one and take the time to refine it, quality over quantity :-)

    @itsartmag I imagined scene of arrival of Catelyn and Sir Roderik to Crossroads Inn, right before capturing Tyrion, I have idea of three similar pictures also showing Crossroads Inn durin War of Kings and later, when it’s run by kids, but need to decide on perspective of that first one :)

    Hi you all,
    that is a amazing challenge. I am a great fan of “Game of Thrones”

    Now here is my first WIP:

    My basic idea for this challenge is to create a Artwork what displays a Vision of Daenerys Targaryen. In This vision the great wall is brocken and a great old palace in figure of a big dragon is seen. The wall from ice is broken, big ice pieces are fallin down and give the look to this majestetic castle. Left and right will a storm come up. I have some more ideas for some swords. But i´m thinking about it.

    My scetch is drawn by hand. The color setup i have made with Artrage. For the complete Artwork i think to work with 3D-Modells and a Classical overwork in Photoshop.

    For this i wish you all good luck and waiting for your amazing posts.

    Hey fella’s

    I don’t have much yet, but I felt like posting anyways just to commit to this challenge. The idea behind my work is to create an interior scene from a brothel with a lot of mood. As to what the painting will tell story-wise I have yet to work out, but I guess it really isn’t that difficult to guess what will happen next. :-)
